Students must be 18 years of age or older before entering clinical education.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Transfer Students To view an equivalency guide, outlining which credits from Washington state universities and community/technical colleges, will likely fulfill Allied Health program requirements, use the Allied Health Course Equivalency Guide (coming soon).
Students may also request an official Credit Evaluation. This step usually takes a few weeks to complete.
Selection of applicants for the RT program is based on a probability of success score. Students' scores are determined using:
Cumulative college GPA.
Average GPA of BIOL& 241 and BIOL& 242 (or equivalent transfer courses).
NOTE: repetition of BIOL& 241 and/or BIOL& 242 (or equivalent transfer course) due to (a) earning a "C-" (1.7) or below, (b) withdrawal, or (c) changing from credit to audit mid-quarter will result in a deduction of points. Each repetition will result in additional deductions. Deductions negatively affect the probability of success score.
On-the-job physical requirements include: ability to lift 50 pounds, carry 20 pounds, sit for 4 hours, and stand for 8-12 hours.
Students who leave the program for any reason must submit a new application for re-entry. In some cases, a qualifying interview with the RT Director may be required. Students can be re-admitted only once.
Conviction of certain crimes may prevent completion of the clinical course requirements of the program and may prevent future licensure and employment in health care. A criminal record check is required prior to any clinical training experience or clinical field trips. Students with a criminal record should meet with the Associate Dean of Allied Health/Nursing Administrator to determine if the criminal history would prevent access to a health care facility. To determine if the criminal record would prevent eligibility to take the national exam, visit the ARRT website (www.arrt.org) and download information from the "ethics" section.
Successful applicants will receive an acceptance letter (in late January) and a packet from the Allied Health Department detailing these next steps. Questions about these next steps can be directed to the Allied Health Secretary (509.682.6660). DO NOT include these items with the application.
Pay a $50, non-refundable, acceptance fee.
Provide current Health Care Provider CPR card (must include first aid, CPR, and AED for adults, children, and infants).

Provide results of a five-panel drug test from a certified lab.
